Lake Michigan College's Remedial Mathematics Laboratory Evaluation.
Cox, Gerry L.
This study evaluated the effectiveness of the curriculum for a remedial mathematics program administered as an audio-tutorial self-paced class at Lake Michigan College. Twelve variables were selected for analysis, including pretest scores, mathematics skills test scores, final grades, time spent, age, gender, and attitude from 247 students enrolled in fall, 1987. The frequency distribution of grades, regression analysis, factor analysis, and number of subunits repeated are reported. The strengths and weaknesses of the course are discussed. Appendices include the course schedule, a 56-item mathematics proficiency test, and an attitude test. (YP)
